Denby Stoneware Casserole Dish

R140.00

Denby pottery, established in 1809 and still going strong today, is quite different to other pottery houses in that their wares often look a bit homemade! Because of this rather naive style their pottery has a very distinctive look to it and is quite easy to spot – I could tell without looking at the maker’s mark that this stoneware casserole dish was made by Denby, and I haven’t bought enough of their pottery to be anywhere near an expert!

I have to say this style doesn’t always appeal to me, but I like how it’s been executed with this casserole dish – I like the contrast of the matte dark brown glaze, with the lighter cream glaze, and I really like the way the lid sits so low down – it almost has a bit of a Japanese feel to it (while at the same time not being very Japanese at all!).

NB: I’ve taken a photo of the larger casserole dish with a smaller serving dish that we’ll have for sale some time later. I just wanted to give you an idea of the difference in size between the two pots – the smaller pot is not for sale today.

Note: I’m away for a week or two, and didn’t get a chance to take measurements before I left, so I’m afraid I can’t tell you exactly how big or small this casserole dish is. My apologies!
